What TriEye does
TriEye is the developer of the world’s first low-cost, high-resolution short-wave infrared (SWIR) sensor technology. The sensors are designed for wide-scale production for a variety of automotive, biometric, medical and consumer electronic applications.
CMOS-based sensing solutionTriEye has developed a patented CMOS-based sensing solution which can be mass-produced, addressing the need for a highly scalable yet cost-efficient alternative to today’s generation of camera sensors.
Revolutionary technologyThe revolutionary sensors from TriEye allow for “high-resolution image data and depth perception in all weather and lighting conditions.” This opens up a huge range of potential new use cases that have previously been impossible using the currently available methods.
Multi-industry applicationWhilst the company’s primary target market is the automotive industry, its technology is highly applicable to a wide range of other sectors, including mobile, industrial, security and optical inspection.
Next-generation sensorsThe company has already tapped out existing generations of their SWIR sensors and has received validation from leading automotive and non-automotive customers.
Why we invested
Short-wave infrared technology (SWIR) is an advanced technique, used for producing images based on radiation in the region of the electromagnetic spectrum invisible to the naked eye.
The majority of SWIR cameras today utilise an exotic compound of materials, IndiumGallium-Arsenide (InGaAs). The resulting costs and difficulty in production pose a significant barrier for their adoption.
SWIR sensors have previously been costly, requiring exotic materials with a complex manufacturing process, producing low yield and low-resolution sensors. This has limited the use cases for consumers and businesses.
TriEye has developed a novel, patented approach for SWIR sensor production. Their solution replaces InGaAs with a silicon based complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensing solution.
"Thanks to the support of our new and existing investors, TriEye is accelerating its growth as we look to become a critical player in smart, safe, reliable, and cost-effective automated vision systems."
